This class will provide real life moving stories of men and women, all veterans of the U.S. military. The class wil be instructed by Andrew “Bud” Fisher. Mr. Fisher has been collecting stories for The University of Toledo / Library of Congress Veterans History Project since 2002, during which time he has interviewed more than 800 veterans.

Fisher will discuss the significance of this history project and highlight stories from veterans living in this area. Serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, he would later earn both bachelor and master’s degrees from The University of Toledo. He then settled in Sylvania and ran a wholesale heating and air conditioning company before retiring. Fisher has published two books of selected interviews, What a Time It Was and 30 Below on Christmas Eve.
